Today I stumbled across a massage therapy called matrix rhythm therapy:
Matrix-Rhythm-Therapy is an innovative therapeutic approach at the core of modern 21st Century medicine. It is based on the scientific fact that the all cells of biological systems vibrate rhythmically as long as they are alive.
The therapy is a practical outcome of fundamental research studies into cell biology conducted at Erlangen University in Germany (Research and Practical Experience).
Here the basic underlying principles : the human body is always oscillating – as are the bodies of all endothermic animals (e.g. horses, cats, dogs, etc.) – in a frequency range between 8 – 12 vibrations per second. That is not a new discovery but during the past 10 years has now been observed in great detail using high-tech video microscopy. Without such visual aids, these minimal vibrations can only be seen under rare conditions such as in the case of certain fevers (ague) or amyostasia (due to tension).
There are several other claims on the page, especially about how a reduction in this frequencies can cause several illnesses and how applying the frequency to the body from outside (through a special device that is extremely expensive for some modified vibrator) cures them.
It claims to be based on research from Erlangen University, but I am highly sceptical about the reliability of this publication. There seem to be no studies available, neither proving or disproving the efficiency of the method.
